Labelling of pipework

Post by Jim Phillips » Thu Feb 19, 2015 4:47 pm

How can I label a section of pipe so that the label is inclined 45 degrees to the line of the pipe? I used to be able to do in in Settings, labels etc but this does not appear to work anymore.

Hi Jim,

This looks like a bug I may have introduced fixing a different bug! It used to be that label backgrounds would not 'fit' rotated labels at all, which I seem to have addressed for point items but not line items. I've fixed this for the next patch, due out soon.

In the meantime the only workaround I can offer is the manual method - you can rotate the label symbol itself. If you do this, I'd suggest you also move the label slightly so that regenerating it does not remove the rotation (Irricad checks if labels are in any of the default locations - if they have been moved they are left in position).
